Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls: Hypothetical Week 1 Review

Fans should have been watching Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls in action this past week at the start of the 2011-12 NBA season. But, due to the ongoing lockout, fans were left reading articles on Bleacher Report and playing NBA 2K12

Instead of seeing the Bulls take on the Dallas Mavericks, fans had to sit around while ESPN analysts predicted that the Mavericks would have won in a blowout. 

Instead of seeing  Derrick Rose face off against Chris Paul, fans had to go on YouTube to watch a video of Derrick Rose facing off against matadors

And, instead of watching the Bulls' home opener against the Atlanta Hawks—a great rematch of the Eastern Conference semifinals—fans probably went to the mall to buy new AdiZero Rose 2 shoes. 

Needless to say, this week was a major disappointment for Bulls fans. 

So, without having real games to report on, this is the hypothetical review of what could have been, if billionaires and millionaires had been able to compromise and the season had started on time.
